Hi there,

I googled this :

By default, your pinned apps on the taskbar are saved in both locations below.

In the registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerTaskband

In the hidden TaskBar folder:
C:Users(user-name)AppDataRoamingMicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick LaunchUser PinnedTaskBar

I tryed to delete the shortuct, but there is some work to do in registry.

The problem is that the favorites are in binary.

I hope it helps!

UPDATE

The following registry keys make up the actual Start Menu and are better readable:

HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion ExplorerStartPage2 

There are these values by default:

Favorites (REG_BINARY)
In this key the actual shortcuts that are Pinned to the Start Menu are captured.

FavoritesChanges (REG_DWORD)
This is a Windows System key for tracking the changes to the Pinned to Start Menu items.

FavoritesRemovedChanges (REG_DWORD)
This is a Windows System key for tracking the changes to the Pinned to Start Menu items.

FavoritesResolve (REG_BINARY)
In this key, reference is kept between the items in the Pinned to Start Menu and the items in the %APPDATA%MicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick LaunchUser PinnedStart Menu  folder in the users’ profile. 

FavoritesVersion (REG_DWORD)
This is a Windows System key for tracking the changes to the Pinned to Start Menu items.

 

Since i am using Windows 8.1, the path is C:%AppData%RoamingMicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick LaunchUser PinnedTaskBar
